New Gauss Malware, Descended From Flame and Stuxnet, Found On Thousands of PCs in Middle East

Quote:
A new piece of malware dubbed Gauss, that experts say is a direct descendant of Flame and also related to Stuxnet and Duqu, has been found on thousands of PCs in the Middle East, mostly in Lebanon. Gauss contains some of the same code as Flame, but is markedly different in a number of respects, specifically in its ability to steal online banking credentials and has an encrypted payload that experts haven't yet been able to crack. Researchers say that Gauss is almost certainly the work of the same team that wrote the Flame malware, which they speculate is a state-sponsored group.
